I won Brenda's giveaway at With Thy Thread and Needle. It is a small journal and I am so looking forward to receiving it. I didn't even realize it was me until she said in her second blog that she was looking for me. I was so surprised and happy.
It was my pick me upper for the day. It started off with my hubby telling me that he just felt crappy, but couldn't tell me why. I didn't want to cancel the doctor appointment. We kept it and he is feeling a little better this evening. I think that the weather has a lot to do with it because we haven't been able to do as much in the evening or on weekends as we had been doing. I refuse to drive when it is snowing and you don't know how bad it is going to get at night. Unfortunately it gets dark so early. I got that reminder of when we are starting daylight savings time. I wish they would change it a half hour and leave it a lone.
We got up to 36 degrees today. You just don't know what you are going to get. We drove in the snow flurries this morning and I did a lot of praying that was all we were going to get. We did see the sun for a little while but it didn't last long.
I think of all my friends who have got so much snow and getting snow where they are not use to it at all. I keep praying that they are doing all right and staying warm. This is a very unusual year for the weather, but we are having global warming or at least that is what they want us to believe.
They were arriving in Kansas City to set up for the bike show. They could set up between noon and 7 p. m. this evening. My son-in-law left about 2 p.m. to head down. It runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
My grandson is still watching for his baby giraffe. He said that his brain told him to do it. His mommy and daddy are going to try to find a stuff one and send it to him to see his reaction. I told her if they couldn't find one I would put out the word to my crafting friends and maybe one of them could make me one and I would have it shipped directly to him.
He has a small battery operated bike that he thought he should get to take to the show with mom and dad's bikes. He parks it in front of their patio door because that is his parking space.
She is taking pictures so I will post it when I get it.
Valentine parties at school tomorrow and they are all excited. Then they have Monday off because of President's day. My middle one won't because his is a preschool ran by a day care. Mommy doesn't let him take a day because they have to pay for it regardless if he is there or not. She would have to find a baby sitter if she did because she still would have to work.
Well try to stay warm and be careful.

Congratulations on your win Shirley!
We got snow here today. We never get snow! I agree with you that they should move the daylight savings time 1/2 hour and leave it alone.
Stay warm!
